absolutely right. to say mitt romney is moving to the middle is a bit overstated. he's just misstating his policies. he's saying i believe something else. teddy kennedy, you're multiple choice. at this point in the election, a hardened electorate, the steadiest race in years, can you say if no, my policies are different than what i said for months and think motors will peel away from obama and the undecided to low information voters not paying attention and may not show up at all, they're going to roll with you because you say, actually, i believe this, when i believe that. especially even the 47% thing, which before he came out right after, he said that was inelegantly stated but that's what i believe. no, that's not what i believe now. who are you? will the real mitt romney please stand up? >> s.e. asked the question about the timing of the rhetorical shift. i would say his base hadn't given him permission to make that shift. the 47% comments are a perfect example. when it came out he did the press conference and reiterated his comments. he said they were inartful and did

al gore blaming the planet. >> right, right. >> for mitt romney's win. that's aamamazinamazing. >> some colleagues on this channel, i thought msnbc's coverage after this was great last night. i was watching chris matthews. he got there about the same time barack obama did. he didn't have any trouble with energy. >> no. >> he didn't have any trouble. >> he was wired and on top of it. >> speaking our friends at current. we commented on jennifer granholm's exuberance during the speech. if you tuk her exushance and combined it with barack obama's nonexuberance, you could have found a happy balance there. you have the perfect candidate. >> we could morph them. we need a hybrid. >> can we merge those together? >> emotionally mitt is much closer to jennifer on that scale. he seemed caffeinated and on ludes and stuff like that. >> he had a diet coke and maybe two. >> he seemed much more energized than we've seen. >> think of the republican primary debates. it was newt gingrich and rick santorum. he needed to turn it on in the republican primaries, and he did. >> steve, what do you thin

center some of these arguments up and put romney on the spot for a lot of it. all right. up next, do we vote for the person with the best policy or just the best campaign? in the guess spot a man that's examined more than 50 years of research tells us how campaigns do and don't matter. proof even serious political junkies like us can have fun. hey, roger, simon, this is monday afternoon satire on tape. >> i heard that at the debate, they're going to ask the candidates questions and the candidates are then going to respond to those questions. >> i think -- that's the traditional format. i don't know. i don't know if they're going to stick to the traditional debate format. >> we'll have to wait and see. >> it would be important what they say. >> what they say is going to be sort of the overarcing theme of this debate. what they say will be incredibly important. >> will they -- >> that will be the most important thing and the tone that they use as they speak. >> right. and how they look and do they double down or walk it back? >> right. >> people will be watching for the doubling down,

. >> right. she could have the last laugh still. >> it's not mitt romney the most popular politician in massachusetts? i'm surprised by that. i'm the lone nonbase stater at the table, so i will leave the hard analysis to you three. there was a moment that really annoyed me last night. let's take a look. >> does bobby valentine deserve another year, or should he be fired? >> you know, i had such hopes for bobby valentine. i'm still just in wounded mode on that one. >> stick around. should he be given another chance or be fired? this is the back page of the boston herald we're talking about tomorrow morning. you have to commit. >> then i give him another year. >> give him another year. >> senator. >> i remember in the beginning of the season that professor warren said the red sox would win 90 games and that hasn't happened and it's very, very disappointing. i'll leave that up to the red sox management, but we need to do better next year. >> you won't commit one way or another? >> there's a lot of problems they need to work out for themselves. >> there's a bit of martha coakley history as

-- two candidates right in front of you. what is the one question that you think would you most like to see jim lehrer ask one of these candidates tonight? >> i would focus on mitt romney because this really is it for mitt. i would go right at the central concern. i would say i would ask, governor, bain capital, which you helped to run, had many successes but it also had many failures. the bering company, the typewriter company, name a list of them. have you ever met, have you ever talked to, do you note names of or anything about the lives of any of the people from those plants that closed as a result of the investments of bain cap signal give me a name, give me a story. >> probably knows the ones the obama campaign ads have mentioned, right? >> probably knows those but those aren't the ones he wants to mention. >> probably doesn't want to bring them up. >> no, probably no. >> no amazing the degree which bain has been a problem for romney. figure this is coming up one way or another, if not from lehrer, certainly obama. i will take my turn, howard, curious what you make of this i wo

. >> the frightened president, john. like little girl scared. i mean, mitt romney, talk about brilliant. two harvard degrees. the guy has never even lost an argument. >> he's no slouch. i mean, he's the president. >> smoke and mirrors. right now they're drilling him on basic grammar skills. >> romney's people just hope he remains upright. he's a big napper, john. big napper. mitt romney, 90 minutes awake and upright means big win for the camp. >> so jonathan, pugh had an interesting poll showing that president obama is expected to win the debate by a51% and mitt romney by 29%. it seems like president obama is more highly anticipated as the winner of the debate. do these sort of expectations setting games actually work for voters? >> i don't think they matter too much for the voters. it's a lot of fun for us to talk about. you know, as the comedy that you were just playing before suggested, if either one of these guys gets a complete sentence out, it should be a surprise to all of us. look, i think that it -- it matters a little bit on the margins, working the reporters who the
